The Next 24 Hours – More Rain on Thursday
More rain has fallen in the past three days than fell in all of April, May and June in some Tennessee Valley communities, and if you are among those that feel a little left out of the party, you still have a chance for a good soaking on Thursday as well as Friday. The full extended forecast is always available at WHNT.com Weather!
Through 8:30 PM on Wednesday, some of the highest two-day totals were:
South Huntsville: 3.76″
Lacey’s Spring: 3.69″
Lincoln Village (Huntsville): 3.08″
Guntersville (Marshall Co. EMA): 2.66″
Last week, we expected an average of 1 to 2 inches for the entire week for most areas, and a lot of folks are still in that territory; the heaviest rain has fallen right over Colbert, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison and Marshall Counties. On Thursday, we expect that to change a little. Expect another day of scattered heavy showers and a few occasional thunderstorms; severe weather is NOT expected. Some heavy rain at times is expected, though! Average amounts of 1/2 to one full inch of rain are likely; heavier amounts around The Shoals and into Wayne, Hardin and Lawrence Counties of Tennessee could exceed 2 inches through Thursday evening.
The wind will pick up out of the southeast around 10 to 15 miles per hour in the afternoon, and high temperatures will be very dependent on what your rain situation is between 12 and 3 PM. Less rain and a few breaks in the clouds will get you over 80 degrees; no sun and heavier showers will keep you in the 70s.
